Trump Mocks Immigrants Who Follow Legal Procedure and Attend Their Court Hearings

President Trump on Monday mocked immigrants for following the legal citizenship process, reportedly arguing that those who attended their immigration court hearings “cannot be very smart,” according to a tweet from BuzzFeed reporter Paul McLeod. After falsely claiming that only two percent of immigrants show up to court for their hearings, Trump reportedly added that “those people you almost don’t want because they cannot be very smart.. those two percent are not going to make America great again, I tell ya.” This leaves immigrants little recourse to win President Trump’s favor—because as he’s said nearly every day, he certainly doesn’t approve of them entering the country illegally either.
